The washer was displaying fl code, and not draining

1) Pull the washer away from the wall
2) Lean the washer back so it is balanced and you can see the bottom
3) Remove 3 screws along the front edge of bottom plate
4)Remove plate, exposing the pump
5)Remove 2 clips that hold pump to motor
6)Place the deepest pan you can fit under pump
7)Loosen hose clamp, pull hose SLOWLY from pump
8)Drain as carefully as possible (its a couple /few gallons)
9)Remove second hose clamp, set pump aside
10)Remove three bolts holding in motor
11)Remove small plastic anchor that goes through frame
12)Follow wires to plastic plug. It is easier to remove the closer to you, then push remaining side of the plug through the mount.
13) Reverse the steps, the new pump motor will go in as one unit because of the torque screws(no clips).

Note: I tried to save the old motor because I could see the clog inside of it. After freeing it up, I re-assembled it ,ran the washer and got the FL code again, So I had to remove it again and replace it with the new one. Now it has been through about
10 loads and is working well.

Tub would not empty-fl indication on lcd panel

Unplugged washer from AC. Tipped washer back at about 30degrees and stabilized it (only part of job that was concerning). Removed bottom panel by removing 3 Hex Head Sheet metal screws. Disconnected white and black hoses from pump. Removed three Hex Head Machine bolts holding pump in place. Reached in and disconnected electrical connector.

Installation was the reverse.

Pump failed because capacitor failed (this was a replacement pump that was about 3 years old--first pump failed when plastic drive broke. Replacement is now metal.

This washer should have been designed with some filtration of the recirculating water, but was not (even though the literature indicates recirculating water is filtered.

Washer wouldn't drain--got ld code

I turned the washer on its side and vacuumed up water off of floor. Then I removed the bottom access panel via 3 screws. Pump and motor were separate pieces and easy to remove by hose clamps, and screws & wiring connector respectively. Replacement pump and motor was one piece that was relatively easy to install in reverse order.

Leaking pump

I removed the bottom metal plate of the washer and tipped it onto its front. I removed three screws holding the pump onto the washer frame. There was an electrical plug that was difficult to unplug because I couldn't see how it was being held into place. That took the most time. Eventually I figured out that I needed to squeeze the outside of the plastic together to release the plug. Once I had that unplugged, the new pump was on in about 10 minutes. Very easy to do. I did it without my husband's help!!! Saved a repair man's fee. Everything works fine.
